Nature Conservancy Finds Common Ground for Wind Power and Wildlife

Although impacts on migrating species are still of concern, the study asserts that “guiding development toward areas with existing footprints” could have a positive effect on the ability of species to adapt to climate change, by helping to avoid habitat loss.
